A special version is also available as a high-temperature material
As a high-temperature material
, the flexible PPS material has a melting point of 280[degrees]C and DTUL of 100[degrees]C, both of which are significantly higher compared to that of PA12 and PVDF.
Washington, January 20 ( ANI ): A new approach to harvesting solar energy could improve efficiency by using sunlight to heat a high-temperature material
whose infrared radiation would then be collected by a conventional photovoltaic cell.
BASF claims it has succeeded in combining a variety of properties in this material: offering not only excellent mould release characteristics, but a high-temperature material
that withstands a continuous service temperature of 180[degrees]c, and briefly even 220[degrees]c.
Although only a small fraction of the jets may carry hot gas, calculations show that the features can transport enough high-temperature material
to keep the corona heated to several million kelvins, says Bart De Pontieu of the Lockheed Martin Solar and Astrophysics Laboratory in Palo Alto, Calif.
The devices, molded in clear, high-temperature material
, are offered in green, yellow-green, red and orange output ranges, and are available as IR emitters, as well.
According to Henrik Svensen at the University of Oslo, Norway, "More than 99 percent of all carbon on the Earth's surface is stored in sedimentary rocks, and heating those rocks with the high-temperature material
that comes out of volcanoes is a good way to put a lot of carbon into the atmosphere quickly.
He speculates that these hot spots represent long-term eruptions that do not throw out enough high-temperature material
at any one time to alter the surface.
